My story involves one of being honest and real about my life. My health deteriorated mostly from stress and anxiety in my life due to several factors. Stress comes in all forms. I struggled at different times in my life emotionally, physically with a condition, mentally from past trauma, and in relationships. I became a healthier individual when I found the courage to be real about my life past and present. There is so much freedom found in loving who you are and accepting things you can not change. My journey is one of being real about my life. We all have broken dreams. Those come in all forms. I see so many people hide behind their pain and hope it goes away. The more I talk to people, it seems we are in the same boat in some way. We are hiding behind different masks, because we are afraid of showing are real self. Our beautiful self lies behind the mask. We just have to find the courage to take it off and share our messy but beautiful story of life. We will find we are not so alone. Whatever you are going through, whether it is health, emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, or relationship issues, you will find you have a friend here that understands what it is like.
